It was a great trip. We stopped and spend half an hour on the main square of Ceske Budejovice for pictures and then went to Cesky Krumlov for lunch and sightseeng. The guide was very nice, talk all the way telling us interesting stuff about Czech history, way of life, and social issues. It was very informative and useful to understand Czech culture and people. Cesky Krumlov is another must-see gem after Prague. This one-day with the option of two days stay trip is ideal for people like as who has only a couple of days in Prague. I definitely recommend.

Our private guide Mathias was very, very good. He spoke perfect German and immediately knew an answer to our questions. He was very well prepared and even had pictures with him. It is highly recommended to book a guide, but it is even more recommendable to book "Mathias".

It was a very nice and very uncomplicated tour. The way of telling a story was sensational. We had a lot of fun, our guide was the best!

we were a small group. The driver/ guide was very gently.
